The first tour, in August and September 1830, was from Edinburgh to Aberfeldy, St Fillans and Glasgow, returning through New Lanark where the party visited Robert Owen's school. The second tour (folio 9 verso) lasted from August to October 1832, when Miss Greig and her friends travelled to the Lake District, Chester, and Malvern, returning through Warwick, Harrogate, and Carlisle. They were joined for part of the tour by John Murray, the publisher. The journal is largely confined to Miss Greig's social life, with some descriptions of scenery and of churches and houses which she visited. It is followed (folio 48) by biographical notes, 1928, on persons mentioned in the journal, by Margaret Stuart and Sir James Balfour Paul.
